SALES NEWS : Housing market stable as sales season kicks in
New figures from Rightmove show that the housing market in the south west of England is remarkably stable, just as the peak spring season begins for sellers and buyers.
Rightmove monitors hundreds of thousands of homes on sale in the south west and says:
- the average house price in the region is now £296,073;
- this is only 1.3 per cent higher than a year ago;
- the south west is one of the most stable regions in the country
Improved weather and the approach of Easter traditionally mean more people are interested in buying property, and a stable market is likely to encourage this further. But always remember these are just averages: demand varies from street to street so local estate agents working on the spot are best placed to give more detailed information.
